inotify + file list problem #165
I wonder whether it would be helpful to have a mechanism to disable the inotify stuff. e.g. support a
I would also like a more extensive solution. Can you tell me how you trigger the problem? Do you run "make", which creates lots of events, and the GUI can't keep up? If this is the case, I wonder whether we should queue up notifications and process at most once per N seconds.
Is it the status tree that becomes unusable (perhaps it doesn't remember its scroll location?) or is it the diff viewer? We already try to accomodate a bit for inotify floods. We can certainly do better.
right now we have disabled inotify - otherwise git-cola wouldn't be useable at the moment ;-)
The weird thing is that no big changes were done on the source files - so inotify should not trigger that much ... so i'm not sure why this happened.
It looked like the Status Tree did not remember it's actual position - and jumped around (most often the selected item jumped to the bottom of the window)
If I can help you further debugging this Problem just tell me.
